Your firewall isn't allowing access from your host to the rsync port of
the fate suite server. I don't know of a different way to download all
the samples. (Somebody mentioned a workaround here:
but forgot to share it.)

If you don't have control over this firewall (it being a corporate one
e.g.) you will have to run this rsync command from a host outside your
firewall and copy the file set over.

Alternatively, perhaps you can http-mirror this host:
as such:
$ wget -Sv --mirror --no-host-directories http://fate-suite.ffmpeg.org/ -P fate-suite/

This *seems* to work, but I can't guarantee, the performance may be
bad, and it may be frowned upon by the website owners. ;-)
